“All the rivers of Thy grace I claim. Over every promise write my name.” Ephesians 1:8-19
“What is God saying but this: “My child, I still have windows in heaven. They are yet in service. The bolts slide as easily as of old. The hinges have not grown rusty. I would rather fling them open, and pour forth, than keep them shut and hold back. I opened them for Moses, and the sea parted. I opened them for Joshua, and Jordan rolled back. I opened them for Gideon, and the hosts fled. I will open them for you- if only you will let Me.” Streams in the Desert
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,faithful in prayer.” Romans 12:12
Hope is a golden cord connecting you to heaven. This cord helps you hold your head up high, even when multiple trials are buffeting you. Hope lifts your perspective from your weary feet to the glorious view you can see from the high road. You are reminded that the road we’re traveling together is ultimately a highway to heaven. When you consider this radiant destination, the roughness or smoothness of the road ahead becomes much less significant. -Jesus Calling
“But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.” -1 Thessalonians 5:8
Hope negates worry. Worry is life’s greatest time waster. Worry uses up your resources, steals your focus, and shortens your days.
Prayer is life’s greatest time saver. Time is precious. It is the substance that makes up your life and God has only given you a specific amount. You don’t know how long it is going to last, so you need to make the most of it. God has given every one of us enough time to seek him and do His will each day. You have enough time to pray, read His word, worship Him, and serve Him. Because He is wise and omniscient, He knows exactly what you and I need. Therefore He would never require you to do anything He didn’t give you enough time to do. -Walk With God, Life Principle #27
“Teach us to number our days, that we may present to You a heart of wisdom.” -Psalm 90:12
Yesterday’s blessings: a drive to Ramona and coffee with mom and dad, a day with the kiddo’s and their friends, rest, provisions, and clean sheets. My back is getting better day by day!
